The gallery has some good stuff, but the owner is a shady operator with zero credibility. So do not do business with him - if you have to please ensure everything is settled in store before you pay him. Because after you pay him, he...More

Great for finding different gifts but take them with you, do not send them as they may not arrive. Be sure to bargain as the price is flexible.

Total scam here and the owner knows it from the second you walk in the door. I've attached pictures of my paid-for paintings that I've never seen again. To be clear, it's not a problem with the Nica mail service as paintings from other galleries...More

On first impressions this is a professional gallery, with nice art work. Silvio the American with a 'rich history of banking in Nicaragua' says all the right things. In reality, I spent $500 on 4 pieces of art. Silvio agreed to ship them for me...More

We had a very positive experience at Ubago gallery. The owner worked with us to find four pieces that we love, within our budget. We took the paintings home with us, and they were carefully rolled in a protective tube.

We went to this place with Overseas Adventure Travels (I'm not saying that they vouched for him, but they should certainly take any possible action to keep visitors away.) I just found this review today. Had I known in February 2013 when we went to...More

I bought 4 pieces of pottery at Galeria Ubago in May 2012. The Galeria does have a nice selection of pricier pottery. The owner Silvio Ubago gave me a discount on the pottery. He told me that they would ship the pottery to my address...More

What a pleasant relief to find this beauty after having lived in one of the most ugly and dangerous cities of Central America. Granada was like paradise to me and the gallery perfectly fits in. I bought a piece in December 2011 and brought it...More
